Amanda passed her hearing test

Amanda's audiology appointment went well. She passed both the tympanogram and the OAE. So that means when she is not acknowledging us when we talk to her, it is not because she can't hear us...I guess the same could be true for most children, huh? Just another thing we are concerned about RE autism.

Coming in late on the conversation about autism. There is also the concept of "institutionalized autism", caused by the extreme deprivation in an institutional setting. This does not refer simply to learned behaviors and coping strategies but actually to underlying neurological development (or lack thereof). I know that Federici has written about it and works with these kids- he may know of other professionals in your area. www.drfederici.com. I've worked with a number of children adopted from orphanages and showing autism spectrum issues- and many interventions designed for children with autism can be helpful regardless of the etiology of the diagnosis. Just another possibility... Jessica (psychologist)
